Welcome back to the last installment of birthday week! Today I'll just touch on a few more ideas for scrapbooking birthdays. All kinds of birthdays, not just kids! We grown ups do celebrate too right? We might not be too willing to share the number involved but we do mark it in some way.
But first, a bit about mini albums. I think they definitely lend themselves to capturing lots of event photos. I love this one that Alexandra sent along.
This would be a great way to share the celebration with friends and family who couldn't be there. I think my Mum would love a couple minis like this!
What about us grown ups? Even though I no longer have birthday parties (why is that exactly?) I still try to document my special day. A few years ago my friend Lucy made me a lovely cake and I needed to scrap about it. I told her I didn't need those numbers on there, but she couldn't help herself....
I also included a photo of the flowers my husband got me on the big day.
This year I did a page about my philosophy regarding birthdays
I only got around to taking this photo two days after my birthday. Did you notice the cupcake topper? I made it with cardstock cut using my Slice, chalkboard stickers and American Crafts Thicker numbers.
Paula shared this page from her 40th birthday. She actually had a party! I'm jealous!
I love this page she did for her Mom's celebration which took place after her actual birthday.
I love the photo she got of that gorgeous cake and her mom's reaction. Proving beyond a doubt that everyone loves birthdays!
So there you go. A bunch of ideas that will hopefully help you for any upcoming birthday celebrations. Thank you so much for joining me this week, I had a blast. And now I really must go finish off my cupcakes from last week!
